Owner description: Whale watching from Dalvik close to Akureyri north Iceland with Arctic Sea Tours is adventure on sea. Great sighting success and five stars on TripAdvisor. Whale watching takes place in the picturesque landscape of Eyjafjordur and fishing inside the majestic mountains of Trollaskagi just short off the Arctic Circle. Whale watching is an activity you should not miss out on! In Dalvik you have an exceptionally good chance to encounter the great humpback whale and often we spot white-beaked dolphins, minke whales, the small harbor porpoises and sometimes even the majestic blue whale. Overall we have seen whales or dolphins in 98% of our whale watching tours. The whale watching tour is built up as an adventure. So with an excellent chance of seeing whales you can also expect more fun with fishing and tasting of the freshly caught cod, haddock, pollock or atlantic catfish. In the year 2016 from 1st May - 30th November we saw humpback whales in 99.5% of the tours, unbelievable and long may it continue.

We loved the afternoon we spent whale watching and fishing with this small family company. We saw a humpback whale and caught some fish on the way back. Once back, the staff grilled our catch - delicious! We had a great chat with the captain and crew and appreciated their knowledge and the very friendly easy going way that they ran the tour. They provided warm windproof suits so we were very comfortable during the 3 hour cruise. The wharf is directly opposite the excellent HI youth hostel and there is a good bakery nearby. We would highly recommend this small and personal tour. Janet & Roger Victoria Australia.

I found myself in Dalvik, Iceland, on a business trip and took the opportunity to go on a whale watching trip. It was cold but the sea was calm. We were provided with waterproof, all-in-one warm suits. We saw one humpback whale and followed it for about 30 mins. The crew were knowledgeable and really friendly. Near the end of the tour everyone had the opportunity to fish for around 15 minutes. The tour lasted three hours. If I am in the area again I would definitely opt for another trip from Arctic Sea Tours. Highly recommended!!

Very pleasant staff. We did get to see a whale while our fishing was not so great but the experience surely was.
